Peterborough College Students Direct Photoshoot with Stamford Shakespeare Company

9 November 2023

Our Level 3 Photography students had an exceptional experience at Tolethorpe Hall, home of Stamford Shakespeare Company. The students worked on four unique sets throughout the day, including Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, Ophelia and Romeo and Juliet, using both designed sets and locations around the hall and open-air theatre.

The students were thrown into a professional shoot environment, which included directing the models and creatively capturing aspects of the plays chosen.

The day was coordinated by Miriam Spring Davies, Costume Designer and Wardrobe Mistress for the theatre, in collaboration with actors from the Stamford Shakespeare Company modelling, sets designed by Amanda Caroline Couture, make-up by Fay Wilkins, and lighting and SFX equipment provided by Flow State Events.

Miriam said “It was a true pleasure watching the students uniquely react and interact with the models, sets and costumes and with such professionalism. Each photographer had an individual take on each subject, we absolutely cannot wait to see the results, what an inspiring and exciting day!”

Richard from Flow State Events said ‘It was an extraordinary experience, and I cannot express how wonderful it was to work with them. Their eagerness to explore and experiment with the lighting equipment was infectious and it will definitely be translated into some outstanding results in their photography.”
